Our Lady of Hope Council pulls airplane, raises money for Special Olympics

September 20, 2014 - Members of Our Lady of Hope Council 12791 in Potomac Falls, plus some family members, pulled a Federal Express jet airplane down the runway at Dulles International Airport, raising $1,500 for Special Olympics of Virginia.


OLOH Council was one of a number of groups that took turns pulling the aircraft on a bright, sunny September afternoon. Thousands of people from Northern Virginia attended the event, which also included food tents, music and displays of historical aircraft.


Twenty-five members raised $60 each to be on the team. It was the fourth year in a row that Council 12791 has participated. Congratulations to Ken Scott, who organized the effort, and all who participated!
